Jenn Guerrero (she/her/ella) serves as the Program Manager with the Indigenous Natural Resource Office, working to support the breadth of collaborative research and relationship building that occurs between Tribal, University, local, and agency partners. Jenn holds a B.Sc. in Environmental Earth Science and M.Sc. in Biological Oceanography. She served with the U.S. Peace Corps in Paraguay where she assisted with community-led ecocultural restoration of forest and riparian ecosystems. Her work and family in Paraguay have emphasized the importance of place-based Indigenous Knowledge in natural resource stewardship and the value of incorporating multiple ways of knowing. With a varied background in the fields of ecology, research administration, and natural resource policy, she views her role as a bridge builder and facilitator to support respectful engagement with Tribal communities. Adjacent to her work with INRO, Jenn is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in the Department of Forest, Ecosystems and Society at OSU, looking at historic fire reconstructions in marbled murrelet nesting habitat and how fire and other disturbance events have shaped forest stand structure in the Coast Range for this endangered seabird species.
